Campus Learning Assistance Services (CLAS)
CLAS Tutorial Sessions and Drop-In
UCSB Campus Learning Assistance Services (CLAS) provides tutorial groups for classes such as ECON 1, 2, 3A, 3B and 10A. These groups meet twice a week and cover important class material and extra practice problems. CLAS also offers drop-in hours for these classes where you can meet with a tutor and ask them any questions. These services are currently being offered online.
Economics 10A Weebly Website
The Economics 10A Weebly Website is hosted by the UCSB Campus Learning Assistance Services (CLAS) located on the third floor of the Student Resource Building (SRB). The website features detailed worksheets, video tutorials, and additional problems sets that include solution guides.
Economics Career Connection
The Economics Career Connection is located on the second floor of North Hall beside the Economics Department office. Although Career Connection takes scheduled and walk-in appointments, it also manages a very accessible website. You may join the mailing list to stay informed about new job listings and info-sessions.
UCSB Career Services
The UCSB Career Services building is a one-story pink building with green trim, adjacent to Storke Tower. Career Services offers advising sessions with counselors who specialize in a variety of fields such as “Law & Public Service” and “Business, Finance, & Entrepreneurship.” In addition, it serves as a gateway to subscription services that are free for registered UCSB students.
Handshake is UCSB’s official platform for jobs, internships, on-campus interviews, and professional events. Handshake is unique to other platforms as it tailors your feed based on your preferences, suggesting jobs that you actually want to apply for!
Research Opportunities, UCSB College of Letters and Science
Although undergraduate research may feel removed from the economics major, the College of Letters and Sciences does a wonderful job providing resources for students to become involved. The Research Opportunities page includes links to a directory of professors actively looking for research assistants and a number of grants for students who wish to pursue their own research.
